    I'm glad to see this unbelievably powerful album included. People deride the 80s for having worthless music, but this is just another example of some of the brilliance that was there. I can remember hearing this album when I was in junior high, and I still listen to it now.

    Perfection to be found in:

    The Jam "In the City" .....altho "All Mod Cons" is considered their opus, I think their debut is a better record with its rawness.

    [​IMG]

    Minor Thread "Out of Step"....this record literally changed my life

    [​IMG]

    The Small Faces s/t....It's amazing how soulful Steve Mariott's singing was for a skinny lil white boy

    [​IMG]

    The Kinks s/t....without this band/record the world would be a darker place musically and half of my fave bands would never exist

    [​IMG]

    Suicidal Tendencies s/t.....need I explain this one?!

    [​IMG]

    Go Cat Go "Let's Hear it Once again..."....the best modern rockabilly record. Sounds like it came out of 1956. Amazing live and studio recordings by the greatest modern RAB band. RIP Darren.

    [​IMG]

    Johnny Burnette Rock n Roll Trio "Rock-Billy Boogie"....the greatest rockabilly record from its heyday. More energy than Elvis, grittier than Gene Vincent, rocks harder than Eddie Cochran.

    [​IMG]

    The Sonics "Here are the sonics"...punk rock before the phrase ever existed.

    [​IMG]

    The Wailers "Livewire"....They could have been the 'Beatles' if the Beatles never existed.

    Wonderful album. The title track, in particular, is incredible. It captures wistfulness and wanderlust and heartache and just an ever so slight ray of hope so well.

    Some of my favorites:

    It explores a wide range of feelings and articulates tons of hopes and fears and then Only In Dreams blows your mind. Every time.

    I think pitchfork said it best:

    Say what you will, I love it. A concept record that brilliant in it's simplicity and quotidian detail. Skinner doesn't try to be a hardass or a drama queen, and it works.

    [​IMG]
    Explosions In The Sky's The Earth is not a Cold Dead Place, for those who didn't know. It's difficult to describe this record, except to say that you're left with a feeling of floating into the ground.

    [​IMG]
    My favorite band. The release that works best as an album is their latest, The Crane Wife but it hasn't *actually* been released yet, so there's no art (ahem.) Anyway, I'm picking Castaways basically on the strength of California One/Youth and Beauty Brigade.

    Great thread acidboy.

    The Rugburns agree with Otterhound.


    Houses of the Holy
    Was an album by Led Zeppelin
    I bought it on eight track
    Not on CD
    Fades out in the middle
    The way an eight track's s'posed to
    The way an eight track's s'posed to

    I got the number thirteen
    Tattooed on my bicep
    The thirteenth letter of the alphabet
    Is the letter ";M";
    Stands for marijuana
    The way that it oughta
    The way a letter oughta

    The ";Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test";
    Was a novel by Tom Wolfe
    It's about taking LSD
    And driving 'cross the country
    Drivin' in a school bus
    A school bus on LSD
    The way an education oughta be

    I wanna drive a school bus
    Over to the Brady's
    And pick up Alice
    And then we'll bake some brownies
    And then I'll grab Marcia
    And play with her Ouija board
    And talk to Mr. Brady

    Houses of the Holy
    Was a really bitchin' album
    Bonzo kicks ass on it
    And then he chokes on his vomit
    The way a rock star's s'posed to die
    The way a rock star's s'posed to die
    The way a rock star's s'posed to die

    I wanna die wasted
    In a room with Eddie Vedder
    We could both die together
    But he'll go first
    Yeah Eddie'll go first
    'Cause he's more famous
    More famous than the Rugburns

    When you buy our coffins
    Put eight tracks in 'em
    Playin' Houses of the Holy
    'Cause it's a really bitchin' album
    Remember when I told you
    Remember how it fades out
    Remember when I told you
